Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 10, 2017

CNN severed ties with Jeffrey Lord on Thursday, hours after he ignited controversy by tweeting the words "Sieg Heil!" at a prominent liberal activist. "Nazi salutes are indefensible," a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. "Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network." ... [Media Matters president Angelo] Carusone asked [Lord], "Why do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you don't take yourself seriously." Lord's response was "Sieg Heil!"

I only ever saw him during election coverage, because that's the only time I usually watch any tv news, but Lord was always more of talking arse than a talking head... he would defend Trump no matter what he said or did, often with a knowing sneer.

Und den Kröterich bist du los!

Not a surprise. Baghdad Bob had more credibility than Jeff. He was the token far-right kook for CNN, serving in a manner similar to Alan Colmes...

Whenever someone says CNN has a liberal bias I point to Lord and how he got equal or more airtime than real pundits on the network. CNN leans Right for the sake of appearing fair instead of seeking journalistic integrity.

Sounds like they were waiting for an excuse to get rid of him. If one of the other hosts mockingly did that in response to an activist on the left or right, would it have been as big of a deal?

Anyway, good riddance.
